Title (EN) FACIAL RECOGNITION WITH SOCIAL NETWORK AIDING
(FR) RECONNAISSANCE FACIALE AVEC ASSISTANCE DE RÉSEAU SOCIAL
Abstract:
(EN) A facial recognition search system identifies one or more likely names (or other personal identifiers) corresponding to the facial image(s) in a query as follows. After receiving the visual query with one or more facial images, the system identifies images that potentially match the respective facial image in accordance with visual similarity criteria. Then one or more persons associated with the potential images are identified. For each identified person, person-specific data comprising metrics of social connectivity to the requester are retrieved from a plurality of applications such as communications applications, social networking applications, calendar applications, and collaborative applications. An ordered list of persons is then generated by ranking the identified persons in accordance with at least metrics of visual similarity between the respective facial image and the potential image matches and with the social connection metrics. Finally, at least one person identifier from the list is sent to the requester.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de recherche à reconnaissance faciale qui identifie un ou plusieurs noms possibles (ou autres identifiants personnels) correspondant à l'image ou aux images faciales d'une requête, comme suit. Après avoir reçu la requête visuelle contenant une ou plusieurs images faciales, le système identifie des images qui pourraient éventuellement correspondre à l'image faciale respective selon des critères de similarité visuelle. Ensuite, une ou plusieurs personnes associées aux images potentielles sont identifiées. Pour chaque personne identifiée, des données spécifiques à la personne comprenant des métriques de connectivité sociale par rapport au demandeur, sont récupérées d'une pluralité d'applications, telles que des applications de communication, des applications de réseautage social, des applications de calendrier, et des applications collaboratives. Une liste classée de personnes est ensuite générée en classant les personnes identifiées selon au moins des métriques de similarité visuelle entre l'image faciale respective et les correspondances d'images potentielles et les métriques de connexion sociale. Enfin, au moins un identifiant de la liste est envoyé au demandeur.
